We treated our selves to another special night, this time we were. Lucky to have found this Japanese restaurant. Staff and cook were very friendly and helpful as we are beginners in Japanese food. The fine art of food preparation is outstanding and we highly enjoyed to watch Stephen! We chose Imagawa and Oda menu, and we loved every single... More

I had a dinner at Hosokawa and I really enjoyed it (against expectations, Amsterdam is plenty of sushi restaurants and the quality is average). I am not usually a big fan of sashimi but this one was melting in my mouth: taste and quality. Nice presentation also. Meat perfectly cooked. Next time I would love to try the Teppanyaki. Minus:...

Everything is okay, but not what I was expecting how it was. Not very much to say about and not very special.

Popped in on the off chance to see if we could get a table as this restaurant had been highly recommended to us! Warmly greeted by a colleague (think maybe the manager) with a very pleasant manner who got us booked in for that evening! On returning we were warmly greeted again and made two lovely G&Ts. We opted for... More

The interior is very nice looking but the "cooking at the table" Teppanyaki causes large amounts of fatty smoke to permeate any and all cloth or paper in the restaurant. Don't plan on going to a bar afterwards as you will most definitely smell of cooking oil and fried food. The food was very good and the service was quick... More

This place is on the expensive side but it is my favorite place for special occasions. Actually I look forward to my birthday or my wedding anniversary to enjoy a lovely dinner here. Both sushi and teppanyaki are great experiences. The staff has an incredible attention to details.

My husband loved it. We chose the teppanyaki. Fresh products. The chef was discret. The service was very good. We will come back again.

The food was good. Ordered the 5 course menu. We booked a teppanyaki style table where the food is prepared in front of you, but was placed at a regular table, which was a huge disappointment. The waiters were very polite and professional.
